How it works: The pyrolysic plant uses chemicals that release enzymes and proteins into the soil to break down the carbohydrates that the plants roots rely on.
This helps them digest the nutrients the plant needs, while also removing toxic waste from the environment.
The plant then turns the carbon dioxide back into energy, which is then stored in carbonate crystals.
In return, the pyrosylids break down nutrients and minerals into usable plant material, which can be used for fertiliser, composting, or to make fuel.
How much energy it uses: The plants energy needs are based on the amount of carbonate in the soil and the temperature of the soil.
The average plant can take about 30,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
However, there are more than a million plants around the world that produce more than 200 tonnes a year, which would make the pyropyls carbon dioxide production more efficient than the average plant.
